How is it that I can write an entire novel, 125,000 words, 381 pages of pure genius yet I cannot for the life of me write 3 sentences in a query letter? Can someone please explain?
Hook, mini-synopsis, whatever you want to call it...they suck or I guess all of mine suck.
I've had 7 rejections, two said they didn't see a flaw in my writing but wasn't sure how to bring my book to market which reminded me of something I heard the at SF writers conference during Katharine Sands lecture. She said be a happy hooker. I need to know how to bring your book to market, in order to do that you need to sell the plot to me so I can sell your book.
What does it mean if I can't sell my plot? Does it mean my book sucks or am I not a happy hooker?
This is just a post to vent because nobody else understands my frustration. My husband gives me a blank stare whenever I bring up queries. It's the same stare he gave me when I tried to explain why Maddie is always on the top of the pyramid on Dance Moms. He doesn't get it and never will. At this point I don’t think anyone ever will!
